Chem 110 Worksheets
|OBJECTIVES:||CHEM 110G, Principles and Applications in Chemistry, is a one semester
course for education, business, nursing and other majors.
The purpose of this course is to accomplish three goals: 1) to provide a basic understanding of the principles and concepts of chemistry, 2) to provide an understanding of chemistry's place in society from historical, sociological, economic, and environmental perspectives, and 3) to teach critical thinking, problem solving and logical reasoning.
|INSTRUCTOR:||Section 90: 8:30a - 11:20a Sat CB 111|
Dr. F.W Boyle
Office: Gerald Thomas 273A
Office hours: by appointment
URL: Dr Boyle's Chem Pages
|TEXTBOOK:||Pure and Applied Chemistry|
by M. Dale Alexander
Published by Wiley
Available NMSU Bookstore
Any high quality Chemistry text in which the student using such text can find equivalent topics to those being covered in lecture. Students who select an alternate text will need to work the problems on the Chem 110 Worksheet link.
|Laboratory and Demonstrations||Alexander, Demonstrations and Experiments for Introductory Chemistry,
3rd or 4th Ed.
|CALCULATOR:||You will need a calculator with exponential notation and logs. Alpha-numeric calculators and portable computers will NOT be permitted during exams.|
|PREREQUISITES:||Chem 110 has no basic prerequisites other than a desire to learn about and understand chemistry.|
|ETHICS STATEMENT/ACADEMIC CONDUCT|
|It is expected that each student complete his or her own work individually. Group work will be acceptable when assigned. Familiarize yourself with the University policies on cheating, plagiarism and general academic conduct.|
|EXTRA HELP:||1. We plan to have a General Chemistry Assistance Room. The time and
place will be announced. Hours will be during the week.
2. A list of tutors (they charge) is available in CB 125.
3. Your lecture instructor has posted office hours AND the student is advised to access the instructor's time using email.
|EXAMINATIONS:||The lecture outline is on the third page. Three comprehensive examinations, and a final, will be given. The EXAMS will be given on Feb 17, Mar 17, Apr 14, and May 5. Each exam will cover material discussed in all lectures prior to the examination.|
|Attendance:||Attendance is a major requirement toward earning a passing grade. It has been noted that those who do not attend regularly do not earn grades on par with their abilities.|
|Exam Times:||Final Exam - May 5 9:30 AM
Keys to the exams will be posted online a few days after the exam.
Electronic devices other than standard calculators are prohibited. You may
not share calculators during an exam.|
Exams will begin promptly at 8:30 am and will end promptly at 10:00 am.
THE FINAL EXAMINATION IS MANDATORY. No makeup examinations will be given.
|ASSIGNMENTS:||Weekly work will be required which may or may not be collected.|
|DISABILITIES:||If you have, or think you have, a disability that interferes with your performance as a student in this class, you are encouraged for academic reasons to discuss this on a confidential basis with your instructor, the Disabled Students Program Coordinator at 646-1921, and/or the Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator at 646-7795.|
|LABORATORY:||The laboratory section of this course consists of two
parts: the Demonstration and the Experiments. These parts alternate each
week over the course of the semester. The list of demonstrations and
experiments is given on the last page of this syllabus. SAFETY GOGGLES
MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES WHEN LABORATORY WORK IS IN PROGRESS.
Acceptable goggles, which fit over most prescription glasses, will be
supplied for the semester. Personal goggles must be approved by your
laboratory instructor. You will be allowed one unavoidably missed
laboratory. Other missed labs will be given a grade of zero. In order to
complete lab work, the student is required to check out of the laboratory
at the end of the semester.
Clothing for Lab: No shorts, no sleeveless shirts (tank tops, etc), and no open shoes may be worn in any laboratory session. A lab coat is not required BUT one may be purchased by the student and used to wear over shorts or sleeveless shirts. There are no options in shoes only full coverage shoes are permissable.
Each student is responsible for the replacement of any broken or missing items in his/her draw. A list of item costs is available from Stockroom.
|MAKE-UP EXAMS:||If you miss an exam for an excusable reason (school activities, illness or family emergency), see your lecture instructor IMMEDIATELY. Without a written notice from a physician or a crisis worker, NO MAKE-UP EXAMINATIONS ARE GIVEN.|
|GRADE:||Grading is as follows: |
1 final: 17 %
Lab/Demo: 25 %
Class participation/Quizzes: 10%
Total: 100 %
The following grading scale will apply:
80 to 89 B
70 to 79 C
60 to 69 D
Below 60 F
|Class Participation:||Class participation is based solely on the judgement of the professor.
Included in the determination of class participation are attendance,
lecture time questions and answers, and adherence to lecture guidelines.
Those coming late to class will earn zero (0) class participation points.
Those talking during lecture will receive zero (0) participation points for the semester.
Those listening to any electronic device other than hearing aides will receive zero (0) participation points for the semester.
Those missing more than 1 lecture may have an absence report issued which may result in the student being disenrolled from the course.
|"I" GRADE ISSUANCE|
|To receive a grade of "I", the student must have a passing grade at the time of the request. Specific requirements will be written which the student must complete in order to have the "I" grade replaced. In no case will a student with failing grades be granted an incomplete. Students are expected to conduct themselves as adults and therefore it is the student's responsibility to withdraw from the course if the need arises. The instructor WILL NOT administratively drop students who fail to attend class. Students who register but do not attend will be given a grade of "F". Please see the NMSU webpages for students for a calendar of the semester.|

I,______________________________,have downloaded, read, and understand the syllabus, the work outlined in the syllabus, and the requirements for passing Chemistry 110 as prepared by Dr. Boyle. I understand that make-up exams are not given and that it is up to me to attend class and complete all assignments on time. I understand that university policy requires me to be passing the course in order to receive an "i" (incomplete) grade should conditions beyond my control cause me to be unable to complete Chemistry 110.
